I'm new to this chat forum but have found some comfort in reading others' experiences.
I'm 39 with two young sons who I'm the sole carer for.
I'm very much in the no man's land stage at the moment and hoping for some results and answers to come through in the next week or two.
In late July I started with abdominal discomfort following the end of my monthly period and any abdominal pain is unusual for me so I immediately took notice. After 5 days I saw my GP who referred me to a gynecologist. Two weeks later I saw the gynecologist who arranged for internal and external scans to take place the following week. The sonographer found a 5cm cyst on my right ovary.
I saw the gynecologist again the same week and he explained that the cyst was probably a hemorrhagic cyst although the sonographer thought there was a chance it could be a dermoid so blood tests were arranged and taken the same day and another scan for 10 weeks time arranged as the consultant felt the cyst would likely be gone.
Unfortunately the gynecologist has then gone away without sending me my results so when I chased them 3 weeks later they were sent to my GP who told me my CA125 results were raised at 380.
Another consultant has since looked at my notes and has referred me for an urgent CT scan which takes place this Sunday.
I've found my mind wandering to worst case scenarios quite a bit although I am very open to the fact that this could all be a storm in a teacup in a few weeks so trying not to worry unnecessarily. Keeping my fingers crossed but as I know I already have a cyst, no apparent endemetrosis etc and raised CA125 I am concerned.
